Dot Earth is Andrew C. Revkin’s blog at the New York Times. He covers a wide range of news related to sustainability and climate change. It is too complex for most language learners, but simplified versions of some of the articles he references could be useful.

In addition, he often refers to videos and other visual resources that would be great in a language classroom. For example, I requested Manufactured Landscapes from the local library after reading about it in a well-titled blog post.

thanks Khalid
